green peppers stuffed with broccoli and rice.

Usually stuffed peppers contain some sort of meat, this time a cheesy rice with broccoli filling was used.

Other stuffed pepper recipes:

Prep the broccoli (and garlic ! of course)

I chose to steam instead of saute.

I usually zap the peppers in the microwave a bit to soften them up.

cut off the top and remove the seeds and ribs (but you knew that!)

as you would prepare some rice, use stock instead water for a kick of flavor.

Prepare a bechamel sauce (butter and flour with milk or for a rich sauce evaporated milk), seasoned as you would prefer.

add the broccoli mixture to the sauce.

mix in the rice

Add some grated cheese, in this case Parmesan to complete the stuffing.

in a baking dish big enough for the peppers, fill the peppers carefully and put them in the dish.

need some bread crumbs ? I chopped up some pretzels for the topping

Into the oven they go ….

run up the broiler after the peppers are hot and bubbly to get the brown crunchy top.


Roasted veggie risotto 

Rice …. I could be a rice a holic ( only if my spell checker lets me!)

Just be satisfied with a bowl of rice?  .. Well not exactly..

I’ve made rice several ways and a risotto method can be quick and leaves some room for additions.

By eye about 1 and 1/2 cups of rice to about double the amount of broth.

Have the broth brought up to a boil and simmering before you get started.

Some dice roasted veggies , here onion, fennel, garlic and carrot , ready to go.

A bit of butter to the pan and toss the rice till coated and sauté for a couple of minutes.

Usually here you add finely  diced onion, but veggies will be added later.

Also you don’t have to use aborio rice to get decent results. I use usually what ever I have on the shelve.

Have the pan at medium high heat… And add the broth, be aware that it may steam up a spatter somewhat…

I add a bit less than half the broth.

The basic risotto lesson….STIR , that’s all…

I keep it a medium high heat , not to boil the hell out of it, you want the rice to absorb the water, not evaporate it.

When most of the broth is absorbed… Add more, you’ll want to divi up the remainder of the simmering broth when adding to the rice for about 2 or 3 additions. STIR…  repeat the process with the remaining broth.

Once all the broth has been added or your rice is close to the consistency you enjoy, add the veggies.

Stir and heat through, and now the final and best step , add grated cheese (again by eye) usually Romano or Parmesan OFF HEAT. ….and STIR….

Plate it up !

MMMMMM…… Work shirt approved!
